From the Beer Writer: I’m not a fan of most tribute beers or beverages brewed for famous people. Generally, it’s ego hunger or a thirst for a supplementary revenue stream that drives their creation versus any passion for beer or the art of brewing. As good as San Diego Pale Ale .394 is, local beer was […]

High school psychology classes inspired her to major in the subject at Harvard, where she minored in economics, forming the basis for a career in behavioral economics, which is all about understanding consumer behaviors and preferences. Similarly, Kelly Schiabor […]

Of all San Diego’s tasting room sites, none have the same allure as the one at Mission Brewery Plaza. Holding down the corner of Hancock and Washington Streets in Mission Hills, it has historic relevance dating back to before the Prohibition Era. If those walls could talk…they might disclose what a bummer it’s been that […]

From the Beer Writer: No one will ever accuse Societe Brewing of being trend-chasers. It’s one of the things that drew me to the company from the very get-go (long before I started working there). While acutely in tune with the ever-changing state of the industry and every hot style that comes and goes, Societe’s brew […]

Don’t look now, but downtown’s East Village is the fastest-growing neighborhood in terms of incoming brewery-owned venues. So far this year, we’ve reported on the upcoming arrival of a brewpub from Wyoming’s Melvin Brewing and a gluten-free eatery by Miramar’s Duck Foot Brewing. The eventual purchaser of (currently Coronado Brewing-owned) Monkey Paw Brewing will bring something […]

I first learned of Scottish-themed brewpub Fourpenny House (8323 La Mesa Boulevard, La Mesa) in early 2017, when the individual who was originally selected to be the then work-in-progress business’ head brewer spent a few brew days with my co-workers at Societe Brewing. Though he eventually departed to take a head-brewer job in Vietnam, my colleagues and I remained […]

The City of Encinitas has traditionally (and frustratingly) been slow to embrace members of San Diego’s craft-brewing industry. While Highway 101 boasts a wealth of bars and restaurants serving alcoholic beverages, Encinitas is one of only four municipalities in the county without a brewhouse. It should be noted that two of them—Lemon Grove and National […]

Have you ever considered why it is that “craft” became the descriptor of choice for the beer we love so dearly? It’s not particularly sexy in and of itself.
